Your printer sounds like it is trying to self clean for some internal reason. My printer does not self clean, it is an older lexmark but some new flash units can self diagnosed to certain extents. Try first opening it up as if you were going to change the cartridges or clean it. See if the carriage roller is blocked or jammed with paper. Paper jams can be so very tiny. I like to call them UJO's unidentified jamming objects. Last year my toddler put a tiny sliver of cardboard from a toy package down the back of my lexmark. It took me a fair while to find it with a torcha nd a pair of tweezers. Good luck. Please post back if i can further assist.

Unable to clean


Hi lobispo41,

If you are getting "Unable to clean" message from your Brother printer kindly refer on the steps below to address the concern:

1. Turn off the machine.

2. Turn the machine ON while you are pressing the MENU button. wait until leds flash. This time you're on maintenance mode.

3. Press 80.

4. Then, press MONO START button until you see "purge:xxxx".

5. Afterwards reset the purge counter by pressing 2783. Purge:0000 will appear.

6. Press STOP button.

7. Finally, exit the maintenance mode by pressing 99.

You can now go ahead and use the printer once again. The prompt should be gone after doing these steps.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa,

Brother 210 C Unable to Clean message appears in


Probably it's waste ink tank is full.
Try this:

1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then 'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to 'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to 'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value which is I assume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press 'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set". Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3. After you have entered this combination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.
